PREPROPOSAL STATEMENT OF INQUIRY
The department of ecology withdraws preproposal statements for chapters 173-527 and 173-528 WAC (WSR 05-06-115 and 05-06-116). CR-101s were originally filed in March 2, 2005.
After the original CR-101s were filed in 2005, the agency held two local workshops and involved local stakeholders in developing preliminary rule proposals. Based on comments received and a better understanding for the direction of the proposed rules, ecology is filing two new CR-101s. The updated CR-101s include the original content with the addition of new terms for the transfer and subsequent repeal of chapter 173-592 WAC, Reservation of public water supply for Clark County.
Transfer and repeal of chapter 173-592 WAC is necessary for the updating of water supply reservations, consistent with local watershed planning and the public interest. Therefore, ecology withdraws the original CR-101s and replaces them with the updated filing.
